St. Brigid of Kildare

We take a leap forward to 2006 when Kildare County Council commissioned a sculpture to house the Brigid Flame in the Market Square in Kildare town. President Mary McAleese presided at the lighting of the flame, which was lit from the flame in Solas Bhride. When Mary and Phil presented her with the flame she held it aloft and presented it to the people of Ireland and beyond as a symbol of hope, justice and peace for our world.
